The young and versatile actress Alia Bhatt has turned designer for a line titled ‘Alia’ for an online shopping portal. She says her love for fashion is courtesy filmmaker Karan Johar. Alia says she was not much of a fashionista initially, but during the shooting for Student of The Year, which saw her in the role of a brand-conscious style diva, she started loving the world of fashion. “I didn’t really understand clothes while I was overweight. When I was auditioning for Student…, I lost weight and because my character Shanaya was so into dressing up and fashion…because of that I kind of got into loving fashion,” the 21-year-old said.
“Basically, Karan (Johar) has a great influence on that and he has a great fashion sense. He tells me when I am wrongly dressed and when I am doing good,” added the actress, whose line will be available on Jabong.
On the film front, Alia is currently shooting for Shaandar with Shahid Kapoor.
